The dust has just settled on the HWBOT World Tour 2016, culminating in the World Championship Final where Marc0053 became the first ever World Champion. Regardless, plans are already well underway to launch next year’s World Tour. Details about the first stop of the World Tour including ticket information have just been confirmed on the new HWBOT World Tour website in a blog that got published early today:
“Today we can confirm plans to host the first ever HWBOT Would Tour event on the West Coast of North America. The HWBOT World Tour Las Vegas event will be held at the GIGABYTE Suites on January 5th and 6th during the CES 2017 trade show. The event will start with a ‘Performance Matters’ launch event (with demos, speeches and a full blown party) followed by two days of overclocking workshops and contests, including the first Overclocking World Championship Qualifier.”
“The Overclocking World Championship Qualifier will be sponsored by GIGABYTE, Intel and Seasonic and is open to all Overclockers. Day one will feature a qualification round where Overclockers battle it out across three benchmarks in just three hours. The round will involve three benchmarks with Overclockers given processors from Intel’s latest product portfolio plus the latest motherboards from GIGABYTE. The top four will be invited to return for the Semi-Finals and Finals which will be based on the same 1v1 structure used in previous World Tour events.”
